NSBA Advocates For Public Education
The National School Boards Association advocates for public education. Their Office of Federal Advocacy and Public Policy represents the interests of 90,000 local school board members in Congress allowing us to be heard at the federal level and within other public policy forums pertinent to public education. They prioritize such federal efforts as federal funding, early childhood education and have recently kicked off the “Stand up 4 Public Schools” campaign to bring a collective voice in support of public education.
